Continental or Regular CFW?

Post by Flight Feathers » Wed Feb 14, 2018 8:22 pm

I know this is my 13th topic in a row on this genetics forum ... But I still have more questions :shock:
Lol.

Anyway, I was at the pet shop a couple days ago and I saw a CFW that had a dark grey tail. Just wondering if this would be called a continental or just a really dark regular? It looked like the colors could have still been coming theough but not sure. I don't have any photos of it either sorry. Does anyone have photos of young continental CFW Zebs?

Thanks!!

All the black marks are intact in rhz ccfw. Also no smudged head clean back as possible red eyes.

Okay thanks! So a dark grey tail would just indicate a regular CFW?

Hi, well I just went to the pet shop and I bought him :mrgreen:

So now I have lots of photos! He's got regular colouring with a dark chocolate brown barring on tail. As you say, it may be an in between.

Here is photos.

You can see how his tail is much darker than a regular CFW.

He shows signs of pale grey on head. Yet the back is pretty clean from marks. And tail is dark yet not black and all other markings are more pale like regular.

Thanks! Where is the orange lining? So definitely ob split?
Wow never knew you could get rcfw with fawn tail bars! Thanks!

Do you think my speckled babies and their fawn sibling all carry ob? I know that they all definitely carry bb because the fawn baby has hour glass but would it be worth a try, to breed my fawn with hourglass to this CFW?

Yeah he pretty much doesn't have a tear line- how strange.
